How robo-boat tech could help uncover ocean secrets

An uncrewed robotic surface vessel that can deploy and recover autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) has been developed.

The team behind the technology, GEBCO-NF, won this year’s Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE which looks for the best new technology to map the seafloor. The team say the prize money will help fund their future ocean projects.

More than 80% of the ocean floor is still unexplored.
